Former president Barack Obama pays tribute to actor Chadwick Boseman.

According to the former president Barack Obama, Chadwick came to the White House to work with kids when he was playing Jackie Robinson. You could tell right away that he was blessed. To be young, gifted, and Black; to use that power to give them heroes to look up to; to do it all while in pain – what a use of his years.

The actor who brought the movie “Black Panther” to life with his charismatic intensity and regal performance, died yesterday August 28th, 2020. Boseman has battled colon cancer since 2016 and died at home with his family and wife by his side, according to a statement posted on his Twitter account. He was 43.
